Carla? My sister's sweet friend (now my friend too) from college who let me know back in September that she was going to start collecting items to sell and the profit she made, she was going to send to us? Well she emailed me today letting me know that the resale went great and that she was able to make another $72 on top of the $35 she had already sent us! She even wore our shirt at the resale! Here's a gal in North Carolina that is selflessly helping us get yet another step closer to turning in our dossier! If I had that "comfortable" 30k in the bank right now- I'd have missed out on the blessing of Carla's involvement in bringing our babe home!
Remember Lindsey? She is a dear friend of mine from high school who now lives in AZ and is a photographer. She generously gave of her time and talent for the whole month of September to have 100% of the profit she made from photo sessions to be split between our family and the O'Neals (another dear friend from high school, who are also adopting). She recently sent us a check for $170 because of her selfless generosity! Over the weekend I got an email from her saying that she had a few last minute requests for more photo shoots to help support the fundraiser! The photo shoot she had just done donated $160 to be split between both our families! Again, simply amazed at who and how God is providing!
Here's the deal... our daily "manna" is being provided. Each step of this adoption journey has been a step of faith and He's yet to let us down! I need to stop whining about being scared and uncomfortable! Thank you ladies for being a reminder of His faithfulness in my life! I'm truly thankful! Joshua and I often joke and say "One day when we're rich (stop laughing) we're totally going to do something super awesome for people like ya'll!" Until then, THANK YOU!!!!
And as far as being comfortable and safe in life... here's a fresh perspective! Check it out:
